Places where I have recently dined:

L. Woods Tap and Pine Lodge: Muddled Kentucky, breaded pork tenderloin

Hot Doug’s: Foie Gras and Sauternes Duck Sausage with Truffle Aioli, Foie Gras Mousse and Fleur de Sel, Smoked Venison Sausage with Blackberry-Cherry Mustard, Espresso Bellavitano Cheese and Chicken-Veal Pâté, Swiss Cheese-Stuffed Tongue Sausage with Horseradish Mustard, Chopped Chicken Liver and Pork Shoppe Pork Belly Pastrami, cherry Coke

(For pity’s sake, I split those. Eating all 3 would have split ME)

Hopleaf: Potato/bacon/leek soup, Mussels for two Belgian style, an excellent cider alas not seen on the site

Edited to add Great Harvest: Black bean and rice soup, hummus and veg sandwich on spinach-cheese bread, a great desire to have room to eat all the bread ever

Spice House: ginger nibs

Takashi: omekase menu with pairings

Kopi Cafe: Russian tea, bagel & lox plate (their Russian tea is one of my Top Five Drinks)

Pannenkoeken Cafe: apple-ginger pancake, deliciously bad diner coffee

Rockwell’s: skirt steak sandwich, Original Sin cider

Taste of Heaven: chocolate chip scone, sour cherry scone

Sadly, all of this debauchery ended in The Barfs. Worth it.

Oh hey, guess where I have been?

So, was your stomach pokey-outey? Also, Hot Doug’s is always worth it. And Great Harvest. So sorry to not get you your scone.

My stomach WAS pokey-outy.

No worries. I got a scone later, and it was so good that I made some. The men of my household are sad about the included cherries, so the scones are ALL MINE.
